Air Canada is making a push into the Asian markets, adding flights from Toronto to Seoul, Calgary to Tokyo, Toronto to Beijing, and Vancouver to Beijing. The new flights are the carrier's biggest expansion ever. "With our Asia expansion alone, we will be flying 11 daily departures or more than 43,000 seats a week across the Pacific Ocean this summer -- a commitment of up to 14 wide-body aircraft valued in excess of $2 billion," said Ben Smith, the airline's executive vice president and chief commercial officer.
